Obama Weekly Address

George Wenschhof

President Obama on Saturday called for a full replacement of the sequester on the heels of the quick passage of legislation in Congress to stop furloughs of air traffic controllers in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
In his weekly address, Obama said that the FAA furloughs were only one of many problems caused by sequestration, and urged Congress to do more than pass a “Band-Aid” to stop the flight delays that were occurring under the automatic cuts.

“Congress passed a temporary fix. A Band-Aid. But these cuts are scheduled to keep falling across other parts of the government that provide vital services for the American people,” Obama said.
